The project includes the design of a new primary school in Bangor. Located on the site of an existing school, the project design aims to make use of the steep topography and capture views across to Snowdonia. This is interpreted through the landscape design i.e. floor marking, maintaining views, contours on play space.
Apart from the steep topography a number of challenges were overcome during the design development of the project including ensure continued operation of the existing school, phasing, secure by design, ensuring BREEAM accreditations, tight site constraints and parking requirements.
